Saturday will be rainy across the Foothills. Light rain and drizzle will be featured for the morning hours, followed by a steadier and more moderate rainfall for the afternoon and tonight. Rain ends before daybreak, followed by a blast of Arctic air that will provide the season’s coldest temperatures of the season-to-date.

The 2019 Blue Ridge Parkway Calendar is a great "from the mountains" gift anytime of year. Get yours at RaysMarketplace.Com, or from one of the many local retailers. This year's feature is Waterfalls along the Parkway. Enjoy!

Forecast Discussion

Low-pressure moving eastward out of Arkansas today will move across the Tennessee Valley, reaching the Mid-Atlantic coast by early Sunday. The low will swing an Arctic cold front through the Appalachians during the wee-hours of Sunday. A soaking rain of up to an inch today and tonight can be expected.

The big story will be the Arctic cold, sending daytime temperatures plummeting and providing our coldest temps of the season thus far by daybreak Monday. Up in the mountains, a bit of snow shower activity will provide light accumulations.

Tuesday will continue to be dry and cold, but not as cold as Monday. Dry weather will continue until the next storm system brings rain back into the area by midweek into Thursday. Cold air will follow in the storm’s wake for the end of next week.
